I think Chartbeat works great at signaling what stories could be followed up on or what stories would be good to send out in a push alert if they're already doing well on social media. It is also great to see what stories continue to do well to continue pursuing that type of content.

Chartbeat is great for getting a sense of what our readers and listeners are interested in so that our content curation can be as specific as possible. It would be really helpful if I was able to see the various pages the story was posted on.

This provides a great snapshot as to what's working at any giving moment. I've always liked how easy Chartbeat's interface is to use and makes it fairly easy to click around to find new pieces of data. I also really love the headline testing on our homepage so we can see real-time how slight changes to word can help a story take off.

Outside the purview of digital media (editorial/journalism/social media), I can't imagine a scenario where Chartbeat would be very useful. If a colleague in this field were looking for a tool to better track results in real time, Chartbeat would be the first tool recommended. But it's still necessary to supplement with Google Analytics.

I use Chartbeat daily and instruct my team to do the same. For "hot" stories, I have my team test headlines to provide the best product to our users. We track new sites that are linking to us to see if we can deliver stories to them in an ongoing fashion.

Chartbeat is useful for a general overview of how well content is doing across platforms, but it would be better to get more insight into the social media platforms - for example who is sharing content on Twitter - as well as a better search functionality for authors. The mobile app could also be improved, as it is difficult to search for a specific author.

Headlines is the best example: If the story is being covered by most/all of our competitors, it is absolutely crucial to get the headline right. The efficient ways that Chartbeat works means that testing different headlines will pay instant dividends with Chartbeat's data indicating what is resonating (or not) with the audience.

A very useful tool

It is a great tool to find out which stories are performing well. It is not as useful for finding out why an article has been well received, i.e., merits of the story compared with social media pick up.

Chartbeat is the best live traffic tool on the market and would definitely recommend anyone in online news use it as a tool to see what articles are doing well at any given moment. It's great for tracking spikes in traffic and seeing where they are coming from. It's not particularly well-suited for tracking historic trends in traffic, but for live traffic it is the best in the industry.

Anyone who needs to know real-time metrics on website visitors needs Chartbeat. This most certainly includes publishers. But campaign managers can certainly use it as well. The "big board" feature is great for displaying in hallways and meeting rooms to remind other members of the teams that people visit your site, sometimes in quite large numbers.

Chartbeat is great in news settings because it updates and tracks info in real time, which is incredibly useful in a newsroom where every situation is fluid. It's less appropriate for newsletters and other projects that you're looking for more long-term data on, unless I've yet to figure out how to do that.

It's a great tool for media or market-facing sites that get enough customer traffic to benefit from realtime changes in headlines, design or display. However, small sites that don't get enough traffic to benefit from realtime changes in headlines, design or display probably can't justify the cost of the product.

Chartbeat is our best tool for real-time performance tracking of news articles. It allows us to optimize our editorial workflow and determine what content performs best, as well as which content should be highlighted when we post to other platforms. I'd highly recommend it for anyone who runs an editorial team or manages a news or information website that needs real-time tracking.
